My friend Nikki had been looking
for a certain album
by the Longshore-
men for a long

though she didn't
know the title, I

find it for her birthday.
I stopped at one of Ann Arbor's
two classical music stores, thinking
maybe I'd try to culture Nikki with a
little Yo-Yo Ma instead. Liberty
Music features an "unequaled selec-
tion of classical CD's, records, and
tapes" that has earned it an interna-
tional reputation, Manager Michael

Gartz said. The store also carries a
large selection of jazz, soundtracks,
and children's music - but not the
Longshoremen.
Next I went to SKR Classical,
which also has a huge selection of
classical music in all forms, includ-
ing the scarcely found reel-to-reel
tapes.
Manager Jim Leonard didn't have
the Longshoremen, but he suggested
that I try Joseph Suk's "Asrael"
symphony, because this artist was
"better than Liszt and almost as good
as Mahler." He said that I would en-

joy -Mahler because his music was
"hyper, emotional, extraordinary,
extravagant stuff." The Longshore-
men were beginning to sound kind
of boring.
Because I didn't want to spend too
much for the coveted album, I went
to State Discount, which offers the
best prices for CD's and tapes - but
they didn't have records. They told
me I could order the Longshoremen's
tape if I knew their label, which I
didn't.
Discount Records is a chain store

its selection and prices. They didn't
have the album either.
Since the album's sort of old, I
decided to check out Ann Arbor's
two used record stores. Wazoo
Records offers a large selection of
rock, jazz, classical, new age, im-
ports, and soul. They also rent neat
videos for a couple bucks, including
Nikki's favorites - Bauhaus and the
infamous Lovedolls Superstar. As
for her album, I was told they once
had it, but someone had already
snatched up. Maybe Nikki?
My next stop was PJ's Used
Records. Manager Marc Taras said,
"Our prices are about two dollars
cheaper than Wazoo on everything."
He added that PJ's is much more
"finicky" with the condition of their
used albums.
P.J's has a large rock and jazz
selection, a women's music section,
a new release section, along with
every other kind of album, except
the Longshoremen.
Schoolkids Records was next in
my quest. They carry a wide variety
of music including folk, blues, in-
ternational, reggae, and house music.
Sean Green, a salesperson, said the
jazz selection at Schoolkids was the
largest in Michigan, second only to
Sam's Jam's in Detroit.

not Broadway, but what it lacks-in
prestige, it compensates in variety.
Whether it's opera, musicals,
Shakespeare, or drama, you can find
it somewhere, sometime right here
in Ann Arbor. Most of the theatre
available in Ann
Arbor is of the

If opera is your cup of tea, there
is a small company here that goes
by the apt title Papagena. Their
specialty is shorter opera, rather than

fan some restlessness. The per-
formances are in the Kerrytown
Concert House, which is literally the
size of a large living room. It is so
intimate that you may feel as if the
performers will fall right into your
lap. If you're an opera novice Papa-
gena is an ideal introduction to a
possible life-long addiction.
Black Theatre Workshop is a per-
formance network that showcases
Afro-American playwrights, artists,
and performers. It features a lot of
student talent from the drama de-
partment, which dropped Black the-
